Customized Training & Referrals

Customized Training

If you're looking to develop a critical mass of problem solvers all using the same improvement techniques and speaking the same language, then consider offering our workshops or certification programs on-site. We can customize our training and deliver it when it is convenient for your staff. Workshops and Certifications include:

  • Lean Practitioner Certification
  • Lean Leader Certification
  • 6 Sigma Green Belt Certification 
  • Supervision Fundamentals Certification


"Teaming up with the Manufacturers Alliance to roll out our Customized Certification Program has significantly raised our knowledge of Operational Excellence.  Operational Excellence and employee development continues to be a top priority for us and this program is a strategic element in helping to achieve these objectives.  It has been a pleasure working with MA to customize the training to get the best value for our organization."

Coaching & Referrals

In general, the Manufacturers Alliance will provide referrals to members for any needed resource - whenever possible.  For example, members may inquire about who they can contact that may have implemented new policies under consideration.  The Manufacturers Alliance will turn to fellow member resources first, then to any credible local resource. Consequently, we may pass on our awareness of their services without endorsement.

The exception to the above is where we have significant knowledge of Lean practices and principles.   We do have long-term experience with Lean consultants and testimonials from members. We will share this knowledge and experience on who members are using.

Likewise, we may offer referrals to Human Resource professionals with experience in manufacturing. Specialties could include:

  • Employee Policies and Procedures
  • Compensation & Benefits
